The Augusta Military Academy Museum is located in the AMA Alumni House in Fort Defiance, Virginia. The museum sits among stately old trees and expansive lawns on the grounds of the now-closed military academy.
The museum provides opportunities to reflect upon the Battle of New Market which raged just outside on May 15, 1864. Students from the Virginia Military Institute as young as 15 years old fought in the battle. In addition to museum exhibit galleries, the site features the state-certified Shenandoah Valley Tourist Information Center.
